Custom Nickel Plated...DW 357 MAGNUM
Sorry. You can see some of the cosmoline oozing out next to the hammer in the upside down pic.
Most of mine get to the range somewhat regularly, but this one really isnt much fun to shoot. I mostly keep it because I think its one of the best looking guns ever.
That Broomhandle is amazing.
Years ago I took it down to Simpson's in Galesburg, and Mr. Simpson looked at it. He is known as a Luger expert and he most certainly is that, but he is equally knowledgeable about Broomies. He looked at my C-96 and told me that it looked to be unfired. I learned a lot about C-96s that day. And the first thing I learned was this; Don't store the pistol in the wooden shoulder stock, because if you do, and drop it , the stock will usually crack. Advice I have heeded.
Is there a story on those Spokane PD headstamped casings?
Nice! That nickel finish certainly makes the DW shine, it looks awesome.
I have a 3” VH barrel/shroud from EWK on a 15-2. They do good work.
(The wooden Hogue grip is a bit long for the short barrel, but it’s comfy to shoot. )
My DWs aren’t safe queens, but I will admit I don’t shoot them as much as I’d like to .
This DW15-2 isn't a safe queen but it's not the one I test my reloads with either. It's the closest to a "safe queen" I own.

Very nice. Is that a 3" or 2 1/2" snub?
This is a 3” barrel/shroud from EWK. I bought it years ago then I got a second 15-2 frame without a barrel to put the 3” set on. EWK still catalogues stuff for DW guns, but I never see it in stock.
I do have the 2.5” VH that came in a 2-4-6-8 VH pistol pac. The upper DW in the small picture is from that set and has the 8” VH barrel/shroud on. (The bottom gun is a .22 caliber DW with the 6” V .)
Very nice...I have a 2.5 blued EWK on my DW 44 too, they definitely do great work
LOL...nice catch...no story, bought some once fired brass and found six of them in the bunch, thought they were cool so I loaded them with some wad cutters and have never shot them.
Who said the Queen couldn't come out and play...just not as much as some of the others...
Maybe this'll cheer you up. This 1967 Muese-Argonne Commemorative Colt 1911 (not A1), was unfired when I got it a couple years ago. Its got about 75 rounds through it now and counting......
